    This single-flock yarn is 100% lambswool, spun from the wool from the lambs' first shearing, and hand-ddyed about 50 miles from where the sheep were raised.

    It's woollen-spun which means it's delightfully light and airy, yet warm and cozy. Marina dyes a stunning range of jewel tones and bright pops of color that are wonderful combined with their undyed creamy white and heathered grey siblings.

    "Sunny" colors are dyed on the creamy white based while "cloudy" colorways are dyed on grey.

      Colors are beautiful!

      I ordered my kit and some other items on my birthday 11/22 and they just arrived! This is not to complain but to say I was really anticipating these deliveries and am so happy they are here! All of the yarn, especially the Marina Skua Mendip DK, are really lovely and I can’t wait to try my first colorwork pattern. Thank you for all of your care shipping to the U.S. and for your nice note in the box.

      Very wonderful holidays to everyone at Making Stories!
